Vacations are great, especially when family and friends are involved. The race at Sonoma turned out OK and so did the F-1 and NASCAR events. The twisty courses have caused a lot of crash damage this year for everyone, and that is where the most severe injuries have occurred as well. I am glad the Indy Car Series is closing out with three ovals, even if one of them is across the planet. Honda must be mercy humped somehow. Danica made history there.
Ms. Patrick appears to be staying with Michael Andretti, and I believe that is a very smart move. Those two have advanced her career a lot this year, and it will also be great for the series.
I am looking forward to Chicagoland, and hope a similarly exciting race like the one we saw at Kentucky returns to Joliet.
It is great to be back; give me a day or so to get back into the swing to take the pulse and report it in my own unique way.
